Reorient the camera so that you are looking at the back.

  • Make sure to pull the connector straight down as pulling up may cause harm to the connector.

  • Unplug the button circuit board from the motherboard by pulling the connector downwards with the tweezers.

This is not completely correct. In order to pull the connector down without force, the little grey tap on the top of the connectorbox has to be flipped up.

This particular step cost me the connection to the button curcuit board. I would be grateful for an indication of where I can buy a replacement. Thanks.

You saved my connection. Thank you. iFixit... I'm somewhat disappointed these steps haven't been corrected.

It's worth noting that I had no luck with tweezers when attempting to remove the ribbon cable. The correct procedure would be to carefully lift the plastic clip with an iFixit spudger and then continue to step 12. The ribbon cable will pull out gently without any other coercion.

Do not pull the connector upwards as doing so may harm the connector housing. Unlock the ZIF connector for the large connector ribbon by lifting up on the brown flap with the plastic opening tool. Gently pull the connector straight out of the housing with your fingers.

1) Step 11 needs to be updated

2) Add Tweezers to the "tools needed" part at the beginning

Otherwise nice instruction

Nice set of instructions, although I had a real problem at step 11, and I recommend it be updated.

The instructions for step 14 should be copied-and-pasted into step 11.

Looking at the instructions for step 11, it was not at all clear that the brown lock-flap needed to be lifted first, and that the connector would then come out quite easily. Applying tweezers to the connector without first knowing about the brown lock-flap could easily lead to damaging the ribbon cable, as almost happened in my case.

So, for anyone reading this (in case the instruction set is not updated by the author), use the instructions for step 14 when you are at step 11. The connector will come out easily after the brown lock-flap is lifted, and the "connector" is NOT the grey plastic part that you see; it is in fact simply the end of the ribbon cable.

Thank You to the author. This instruction set saved me a bunch of money.

Also about step 11: Twezers may harm the cable. After opening the brown lock you can just carefully let the cable get out on step 13 while lifting the button circuit board away from the camera. On the reverse order,after replacement, twezers are needed to push the cable gently in.
